Throwback Thursday! St. Pat’s for All Parade in Sunnyside, NY
With yesterday’s news that the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is finally lifting the ban and allowing some LGBT groups to march in the 5th avenue parade, I thought of the St. Pat’s for All parade in Sunnyside, my neighborhood. This parade celebrates diversity and excludes no one, not even the local Dog Society! Mayor de Blasio joined the parade in Sunnyside and did not attend the one on 5th avenue. I had the privilege of photographing this parade for the past few years, and wanted to share a few of the photos.
“We are here to honor the extraordinary Irish heritage of this city. And we want to do it in a way that respects all people and all communities.” – Bill de Blasio
